Rain chaos and floods are forecast for West Yorkshire.

And Examiner weatherman Paul Stevens is predicting a third of a month’s rain in as little as four hours.

A severe weather warning has been issued by the Met Office for rain just north west of Huddersfield, and we’re told to expect 15-20mm of rain overnight.

Paul said: “There is set to be some torrential downpour tonight.

“The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning for rain in the Bradford area, and we’ll be getting the bottom end of it.

“Some of the rain will be very heavy, but it will clear around midnight.

“The ground is so wet and clogged it’s enough to produce some floods in fields and on the roads, so there may be disruption.

“There is potential for some homes to flood too.”

Paul said the rain should come to a halt later tonight, but the weekend will bring gale force winds.

“There will be strong winds from a South Westerly band of air moving towards Iceland.

“If you’re out doing your Christmas shopping on Saturday it’s best to wrap up, as we can expect winds of up to 60 miles per hour.

“This will get even stronger on Saturday evening.”
